The journal, founded in 1994, aims to contribute to the systematic understanding of political phenomena in an era of profound transformations. It publishes essays and articles in political theory and empirical studies grounded on rigorous methodologies, both quantitative and qualitative, as well as stimulating reflection on the state of the art by means of literature reviews in the various sub-fields of political science. The journal promotes cooperation across a number disciplines (legal, philosophical, historical, economic or sociological) which study politics using methods different from those of political science, or which study non-political phenomena in ways that nevertheless contribute to our understanding of politics.
The journals on this platform adopt and promote specific guidelines (PEMS) about publishing ethics. Our ethics statements are based on COPE’s Best Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors.Keep reading
